Easter Napkin Holder/Display

It isn't much but that cute little Easter basket in the photo above--I bought that years ago and just always loved it.  Not long after I bought it, I decided it was the perfect napkin holder and not a bad centerpiece.  I would display it on the dining table or counter until we used the napkins on Easter Sunday.

These cute napkins and napkin rings came from Boise, Idaho--many years ago.  I don't even remember what store I purchased them at!

It does make kind of cute decor.

Sometimes it is nice to just use items you have on hand...

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Easter!
